Effsiesse is a courtship dance ...

Effsiesse is a courtship dance, in the manner of “Catch the Wind”. The name derives from the idea behind each of the 8 bar phrases and forms the mnemonic FCSC:- Beginning with flirting in the parallel reel where dancers get the briefest of moments of eye contact with partners as they cover across the set. Then the dancing couple’s chase – more flirting as the woman leads, and man follows, some indecision as they turn away and towards each other dancing up the set until the woman turns to meet her partner. Then the 1st couple’s solo (hands held throughout), and finally the others join in for a celebratory circle.
